Butterflies and Prayers - KSS

Today's card sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps was created for a dear friend who was involved in a serious accident this week. It was created with images from  Butterflies Multi Step Clear Stamps, Big Leaves Multi Step Clear Stamps, Letters from the Past Multi Step Clear Stamps, and Words of Comfort & Joy Clear Stamps by Kitchen Sink Stamps. It was stamped entirely with Distress Oxide Inks by Ranger. I can't seem to put them down these days! They do things that no other inks can!!

CCEE1730 - Walk on Stilts Day

CCEE hostess, Maryann, has challenged the CCEE Stampers to create a tall thin card with any theme to celebrate Walk on Stilts Day this week!

Here's mine. No stamping at all this week - just embossing and die cuts for this elegant white-on-white sympathy design.

Distress Oxides and Layered Stamping

I cannot tell you how much I love the new Distress Oxides from Ranger. I received my shipping notice that the 12 newest colors are winging their way to my house this week. Unable to contain my excitement, I pulled out my old ones to create this colorful design sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps. The images are from Carnations Multi Step Clear Stamps and Make a Big Statement Clear Stamps.
